About the Program:
Chelsea Smith is an artist of mixed European and Anishinaabe descent from Northern Ontario. Chelsea will grow her own plants to create dye, which she will use to tint natural fabric. The fabric will then be made into a traditional hand-tied quilt through a series of community quilting and story sharing sessions. The artist will exhibit the resulting artwork and host an artist talk and participatory workshop, inviting attendees to experiment on paper with natural pigments created by the artist.
About the Artist:
Chelsea uses her art practice to highlight the importance of slow living and our natural surroundings. She graduated from OCAD University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts, Drawing and Painting, where she focused on creating works with materials foraged from the land, and maintains this as a key component of her practice. Through this process, she has learned about plants and soil in intimate ways, learning their names, their stories, and their characteristics. Chelsea is currently in the process of completing a Bachelors of Education and hopes to be able to share the knowledge she has gained over the years with her future students.
This program is a part of the Creatives In Residence series by Ontario Culture Days.
